Celebrating mental health at the InsideOut Awards 2021

We were proud to be part of the InsideOut Awards on 24 March, dedicated to promoting good mental health and the people and organisations who champion it. As part of our ongoing partnership with social enterprise InsideOut ,which aims to smash the stigma of mental ill-health, we sponsored the Wellbeing Leader of the Year and Third Party Influencer categories.

The awards night, held virtually for the first time in the UK, was hosted by professional entertainer Em Stroud and included a DJ set by InsideOut founder Rob Stephenson. Over 250 guests enjoyed an evening of networking and entertainment, billed as the ‘best night in in 2021’.

The judges named 63 inspirational finalists from over 200 entries in 2019/2020. The 23 winning teams and individuals represented employers as diverse as universities, banks, consulting firms, NHS trusts, supermarkets and oil companies around the UK.

Proud sponsors and finalists

We were a finalist in the Best Mental Health Initiative in Lockdown category thanks to our many original initiatives that included ‘Let’s Get Talking’, ‘WISE‘ and ‘Step Around the World’. The judges were also impressed by the valuable resources we’ve made available to our employees to support their physical, emotional and mental well-being.

Damian Lenihan, Executive Director, Operations and Distribution, Europe, presented the awards on behalf of Aetna International. Rachel Czernobay, of international law firm CMS, picked up the prize for Wellbeing Leader of the Year.

Wellbeing at Work London 2020
5 November 2020

It is well documented that the organisations that prioritise workplace wellbeing out-perform their competitors and thriving workplaces are more profitable and creative.

In its sixth year the Wellbeing at Work event returns to London but in a virtual setting. It’s a must attend event for HR, Benefit, Wellbeing & Business leaders to learn from experts and their peers about the latest well-being developments and successes that are enhancing individual and organisational performance in companies across the world.

We are proud to be participating in this event and will be sharing our experience of staying socially connected in a global organization through COVID-19. In addition, we will discuss how employers can harness the power of technology to mitigate against an ‘always-on’ culture and encourage their employees to shape the company's wellness culture by safeguarding their workers’ personal health data.

WellBeing at Work Event Amsterdam October 2020 Logo

Talking about ‘The digital health dilemma — Is technology keeping employees healthy or making them ill?’

Technology has been vital to the way we live our lives, not only in a remote working capacity but as a driver for social connectedness. Currently, this not only contributes to an ‘always-on’ mindset but to stress and exhaustion. In the current situation, it’s an important conversation to have to ensure resilient well-being and robust mental health in our employees.

We are proud to have been part of the Well-being@Work Amsterdam summit  where CEO-EMEA David Healy, Caroline Pain, Senior Vice President, Customer Proposition and Dr Hemal Desai, Global Media Officer took part in an interesting panel discussion on the digital health dilemma.

We also held an interactive workshop in the afternoon, when Damian Lenihan, Executive Director, Europe, was joined by Sam Mckendrick, Vice President, HR, as well as Caroline and Hemal. The main takeaways attendees gained were a better understanding of the physical and mental well-being needs of employees and the need to better equip managers to improve the well-being of their teams.
